Physical activity improves cognitive, emotional, and physical health. Children who are physically active are better prepared to learn. To make the most of this connection between physical activity and learning — and to give kids a quick break to be active during the day — schools are incorporating physical activity into everyday classroom culture.
This week, Healthy Schools Campaign asks:
How do you incorporate physical activity into the classroom?
Submissions close Sunday, August 14 at 11:59 p.m.
Remember, there are four ways to enter Healthy Schools Campaign's Ideas for Health & Wellness Contest:
Facebook. Like us on Facebook. When each week’s question is posted, respond to the question with a comment that shares your story, idea, and tips. (Please remember to share your ideas as a comment on each week’s post rather than as a general comment on HSC’s wall.)
Twitter. Follow @healthyschools. When each week’s question is posted, tweet with your idea with the tag #hscidea. There’s only 140 characters, so make ‘em count! (Submissions that do not include #hscidea will not be counted . . . we may not be able to find them!).
Blog. Each week, we’ll post a question on our blog. Share your story, idea, and tips in the comments section of that week’s post.
Email. Send an email with your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org for that week's question. Put the question in the subject line.
We will randomly select a winner who will be contacted in respect to their submission. (Facebook winners will receive a message, Twitter winners will receive a DM, and blog commenters will receive an email). We’ll share stories and ideas from the contest in the coming weeks. All entrants will be recognized when their ideas are used.
Questions? Contact us.
This is your last chance to enter the contest! Good luck! We look forward to hearing your ideas!
